SubjectRe: [PATCH] phy: rockchip-typec: Try to turn the PHY on several times

I did the test of increase the number of tries to 100 because
unfortunately, even with this patch applied, I can see the problem on
my kevin with current mainline.

[ 244.309094] rockchip-typec-phy ff800000.phy: Turn on failed after 100 loops

That's an extra debug print ^

[ 244.317019] phy phy-ff800000.phy.8: phy poweron failed --> -110
[ 244.323824] dwc3 fe900000.dwc3: failed to initialize core
[ 244.330057] dwc3: probe of fe900000.dwc3 failed with error -110

So I'm wondering if there is something else that I need to apply to
really fix this as you didn't reproduce the issue doing lots of tests
and I can reproduce the issue very easily.

It's curious that in my case I never see this message, or it works or
it fails after 100 retries. I'll do more longer tests and continue
investigating a little bit.
